I need to put a pinion seal in my 08 IC and for the life of me I can't remember how I kept the parking brake disengaged on the last one I did?

What is the procedure to keep it off for service?

Again,,,,,many thanks!!!

I've not had to do this yet, but I think you just adjust it out on the drivers side frame rail. Unless there is something easier.

I will be watching this for more info myself. :)

You can also do it by leaving the key on...park brake released.

Are you sure its the pinion seal? I just did one that was claimed to be the pinion but when I got it apart it was the pinion shims leaking. The bearing housings on the Ih's are very thin in several areas and dont seem to be clamping the shim pack well enough. its an easy fix to slide it out a quarter inch and reseal.
As far as removing the brake cable leave the key on and release the parking brake, use gentle pressure to see if the cable adjuster will budge on the sahr can. If it seems like its rusted in slide the boot back and apply a bit of heat to the aluminum shaft and it should break loose. If you snap it off your buying a new sahr can.
